Also this version of the book is much cheaper than the expensive version published by the same publishing company. Of course the paper and the print has lower quality, but it is an acceptable and useful copy to read. As a side note, do not fall for the trick that publishers use to sell you the book with the same contents at a much higher price by introducing two different versions of the same book.
Many famous and high-selling textbooks are published in two different version by the same publisher, "US edition", and "International edition". But the naming is misleading. The actual names should be "low cost version" and "expensive version".
The technique is based on the fact that in real world different customers are willing to pay different amounts of money for the same product. And it happens for a whole variety of products, not just textbooks. Of course, in case of textbooks, the "expensive version" is often offered in higher quality paper and print.
But the publisher tries to either convince you that the contents of the two versions are different, or buying the cheaper version in the US is somehow illegal or immoral.
And it is absolutely moral to buy a cheaper product offered by the original publisher and copyright holder to save some money, for the exact same reason that it is absolutely moral for a publisher to produce and sell two versions of a book with the same contents at two hugely different prices just to earn more money.
